Polydentate

Postby Meghanhe1l » Mon Dec 03, 2018 10:03 pm

The definition of a bidentate ligand is that it has "2 bonding sites" -- is this referring to 2 bonding sites on the ligand, or that the ligand binds to 2 sites on the same cation?

A bidentate ligand would form 2 bonds with the central atom.
